Re: [IP] Bad Quickset sites

I had a problem with Quicksets too.  I had one bent cannula, one site came
out during the night and a couple of them hit veins (hurt a lot) and had to
be removed.  I am fairly thin too and decided to give up on them and use
Sil's.  I figured the 90 degree angle just wouldn't work for me.  I have
been using the Sil's  since April and have not had one bad experience yet.
I do use less of an angle than they recommend and they work great.  So far,
I have only inserted them in my abdomen area and I do use my navel area too.
It doesn't bother me to insert them either.  I know that is what turns a lot
of people off from the Sil's.  Hope this helps.
